One of the toughest teams to beat, but why aren't the Germans winning titles and cups?

That, and the fact that I don't think Klinsmann is right for the job - personal opinion


Valleta, I have to agree with you on that point. I believe Klinsmann is a very good motivator, but he is not head coach material. If I recall correctly, he was very wild as a player, and lacked the discipline to control himself. Someone like Mathias or Voeller were a little more stable, and may have been better coaching selections. Klinsmann's main role is to remind the Germans of their great success in the early 90's when he was a player.

At the moment the German coach is under fire because of the drop in FIFA rankings for the German team. Today they will play a friendly match against the USA to hopefully redeem themselves. If anyone gets a chance to see this please report on their performance.

Well, I didn't get to see the game, only the first 15 minutes, but from the looks of it, Germany put a thumping to the US squad. Final score was 4-1. In the US' defense, they did not start a number of their key players such as Pope, McBride and Donovan. Still, I would have thought they could put up a better showing than they did. This proves that even though Germany is having a down year, they will be hard to beat at home.

Ah, it is good to know that the host team has been doing more than drinking German beer and the coach can breathe a sigh of relief.

I'd like to make a couple of quick points here.

Klinsmann is under pressure because of Germany's performances under his stewardship, not because of FIFA rankings. Nobody takes the rankings seriously, they do not mean anything.

Germany has had some shockers in recent years and are not looking good for their home world cup. They are not the Germany of Klinsmann's era and clearly lack the talent we are accustomed to seeing from that country. Germany had the luckiest run of any team at the last World Cup and profitted from other big guns falling by the wayside.

If you take away Ballack, their attack lacks creativity. A home advantage will help them, but at this stage I wouldn't rate them as a top hope. Perhaps semis. Mind you, anyone who writes of the Germans does so at their own peril.

I'm not surprised Germany beat the US, who are obviously overrated in the ranking system. But if you take away Donovan, McBride and Pope that would have a destabilising effect.

Soccer: FC Bayern wins DFB Cup

Berlin. The Munich soccer team 'FC Bayern Muenchen' has won the German Soccer Federation (DFB) Cup, defending the title that it won last year. In a largely unexciting game, a head-ball by Claudio Pizarro was enough to to secure a 1-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt. The win gives the Bavarians a chance at a 'double' again this year: taking both the Cup and the Championships. If they manage that, it would be the first time in German history than any team had earned two doubles in a row. Meanwhile, in women's soccer, the defending champions also won the Cup again: Turbine Potsdam beat '1. FCC Frankfurt' 2-0.

Rummenigge expects Kahn to quit international game

QUOTE
Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said on Wednesday that goalkeeper Oliver Kahn will quit the German national team after the World Cup.

Rummenigge also said Kahn had been devastated by the decision of Germany coach Juergen Klinsmann to relegate him to second put him on the bench behind Arsenal's Jens Lehmann.


https://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=367553&cc=5901

I think relegating Kahn was a big error on the part of Klinsmann. I know he is trying to shake things up with the German squad but taking one of your best players out of the game, and also out of the team by stripping him of his captaincy is not the way to do that. Kahn has been an integral part of the Germany team for many years now, basically since Mathias left. I don't blame Kahn for his decision at all.
